No Nathan Drake Cameo in Upcoming Uncharted: The Lost Legacy
One of the biggest surprises to come out of the PlayStation Experience Event last summer was the announcement of Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, a stand-alone spinoff game that would star Chloe Frazier and Nadine Ross from previous Uncharted titles. The announcement of this game was interesting in that it came after the announcement that the previously released Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End would be the last of the series to focus on Nathan Drake, and seemingly end his story. However, fans still kept hope that perhaps a Nathan Drake cameo might be in store for this expansion of the Uncharted universe. Now we know that, sadly, that cameo is no longer in the question for this project.
A new interview with The Lost Legacy’s creative team has been posted on the official PlayStation blog. In it, various aspects of the game are detailed, such as the south India setting, the dynamic between the two female leads and the level design for the game. What may be the most shocking news from this post is the studio’s confirmation that a Nathan Drake cameo will not occur during the game. Writer Josh Scherr explains the reasoning for this exclusion, saying:
We entertained a few possible ideas around including Nate as a secondary character, but everything we did felt superfluous because we tied it all up with Uncharted 4.”
This may be disappointing for some Uncharted fans, but of all the studios out there, Naughty Dog has definitely earned trust regarding integrity with narrative. What do you guys think?
